With one week left for our Summer Students, we thought we would change things up a little bit with an outdoor shoot! Featured here are Ave Bross and Kojo Hayward…taking Bay Street to a whole new level!



Ave Bross

Suit-Strelson; Top- Strelson;  Shoes- Ecco

1) Who is your style inspiration?

I am definitely impressed with the outfits worn by Jacobin Mugatu.

2) What is your “go-to” signature item that you need to wear to work?

A nice tie and funky socks. It adds some character to the suit.

3) What advice can you give to students about choosing the right outfit for interviews?

The key for interviews is to wear comfortable shoes. You will be walking (and sometimes running) throughout interview week and the last thing you want is to be distracted because your feet are hurting and you have blisters. Invest in comfortable shoes so you can be ready for whatever comes your way!

4) What is your favourite store to shop at for business clothing?

The Bay and Banana Republic (for business-casual).


Kojo Hayward

 

Suit-Custom;  Shoes- Stacy Adams

1) Who is your style inspiration?

Dwayne Wade.

2) What is your “go-to” signature item that you need to wear to work?

A pocket watch.

3) What advice can you give to students about choosing the right outfit for interviews?

Don’t be afraid to look stylish, just save the most stylish (or loud) pieces in your closet for now. You can usually show as much personality as you want with socks, a moderate amount with your tie, but be as basic as your closet permits in your suit (Charcoal or Navy). If you have a simple shirt and tie combo, feel free to throw in a pocket square and/or tie clip. If you already “stand out” in your combo, consider ditching the pocket square and tie so your outfit does not appear too busy.

4) What is your favourite store to shop at for business clothing?

Nordstorms and the Bay at the change of seasons (Sales!).
